Clean-up and Create Art Competition

Clean-up and Create Art Competition

The Competition

This art competition is administered by South Downs National Park Trust in partnership with Sussex Green Living on behalf of the Boltini Trust.

Clean-up and Create has been designed to provide a platform for raising awareness of the problems and solutions of the environment and littering amongst youngsters whilst engaging them in a fun and creative way.

The competition will be open to all schools, uniformed groups and individuals in Hampshire and Sussex with entrants being between 5 and 16 years of age.

The 2 main competition categories are:

  • Individual submissions
  • Uniformed groups including scouts, girl guides, army, sea and air cadets under 17 years old.
